Here is the link to our route for this year. http://tinyurl.com/TVPDX-UglySweater2014 Also, this will be an outreach event where we will be hanging pro-vegan posters on telephone posts, bulletin boards, and sticking them in newspapers. We will provide all of the material for this part of the event. Now, get going on finding the perfectly hideous outfit for the crawl! http://www.facebook.com/events/543725259095967/

Former city council candidate and Concordia University professor Nicholas Caleb will be facilitating an introductory course on environmental law and policy. Despite the fact that the City of Portland and the State of Oregon have reputations for being leaders in green policy making, there are many environmental problems in our region that are ignored or exacerbated by existing law. The idea for the course is to explain the way environmental law is structured/enforced and to provide potential policy solutions that can be implemented in our community and at the state level. Specifically, this course will highlight public trust law (in combination with rights based governance) as a vehicle for real solutions. Class participants will act in working groups to creatively apply the material to real solutions in our city and bioregion, with some working groups moving towards a ballot initiative campaign in 2016. This course will be accessible for anyone who has an interest in environmental law and policy or activism. Opportunities will be made through this event page to read the material, view class lectures and discussions, and participate in written discussion here on the page. In the next class, we will examine local fossil fuel export permitting processes. http://www.facebook.com/events/569707083162745/

Peacock Lane: The Essentials December 15th – 31st from 6 pm to 11 pm Lights stay on until midnight Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve Traffic is always lighter after Christmas PPD will close Peacock Lane to vehicles as needed for safety Follow @PDXPeacockLn on Twitter for updates Optional donations of cash and canned goods accepted at Cocoa Booth Please no sales or vending on the Lane during viewing hours FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 2014 Rings in Changes to Portland’s Favorite Holiday Tradition Portland Police will manage street closures to ensure pedestrian safety and prevent neighborhood gridlock Portland, OR, October 20, 2014: The holiday season is approaching, and residents of Southeast Portland’s Peacock Lane are once again planning their legendary light displays. One of Portland’s most beloved holiday traditions, Peacock Lane residents have been decking out their homes since the 1920s. As with all great traditions, the Peacock Lane event has evolved over time. Due to record breaking crowds in recent years, the Portland Police Department has decided to take a more active role this year in managing vehicle access to the Lane and on surrounding streets. “Our goal is to maximize safety, and anytime the crowds cannot be contained to sidewalks, we will redirect vehicles in order to protect pedestrians and prevent traffic backups throughout the neighborhood,” says Portland Cadet and Reserve Coordinator, Officer John Shadron. Traffic management may include closing the street to motor vehicles, or allowing right turns only onto and from Peacock Lane during peak viewing hours. Peacock Lane residents will be sending out live updates on weather and traffic via Twitter (@PDXPeacockLn) and Facebook (facebook.com/PeacockLn). Visitors to Peacock Lane are encouraged to utilize free street parking several blocks away (do not park in Walgreens lot) or public transportation (TriMet buses 15, 75, and 20 have stops within a few blocks; http://trimet.org/go/cgi-bin/plantrip.cgi), and view the lights by foot for the best experience. Those visitors who must view the displays from their vehicles are strongly encouraged to join us at non-peak times to avoid possible street closures; we recommend before 8 pm mid-week, or any evening between December 26th and 30th. As always, residents will be serving free hot cocoa and cider from the handmade booth in the center of Peacock Lane. Any optional donations collected at the cocoa booth are used to cover the costs of the event (cocoa and cider supplies, street maintenance and cleanup). In years when donations have exceeded event costs, a donation is made to a local charity selected by Lane residents. Vendors, performers, and other organizations are asked to refrain from soliciting or fundraising during viewing hours. Peacock Lane president Becky Patterson explains, “We’ve always felt that this should be a free event for the community. We will continue to appreciate everyone’s cooperation in keeping Peacock Lane festive and community-focused, rather than a commercial endeavor.”

- There's no place to park your bike at the grocery store. - Your kid can't bike to school because of one dangerous road crossing. - Your neighborhood association is fighting a bike-friendly project. The problem is clear. The solution might even be obvious to you but how do you get others on board? How do you get the problem solved? The Bicycle Transportation Alliance has been advocating for better, safer streets since 1990. In this free one-hour clinic, a BTA advocate will share some of the lessons we've learned about how to get your voice heard -- how to get your community's problems solved. Topics covered include messaging, defining success, power mapping, identifying allies, and pressure vs. persuasion. This month's clinic will be presented by Carl Larson, BTA Engagement Manager.

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

Click here to RSVP through Meetup! Come and join other social entrepreneurs, Hatch and SE Meetup members and local businesses to hear about how local investing is transforming the way that social enterprises raise capital. This evening will be both an educational experience, to learn about all of those confusing terms when dealing with money, as well as a fun chance to socialize with and meet other social entrepreneurs and local investors. By the way - when we say local investors, we don't mean people with loads of money. YOU can be a local investor. YOU can come along and find out how your community can invest in your enterprise. We'll explain some of the differences between local investing methods, as well as the important differences from traditional startup capital like VCs, loans, and donation-based crowdfunding (Kickstarter, Indiegogo etc). We'll also introduce you to the possibilities of using securities-based crowdfunding, which will be legal in Oregon early 2015, for the first time in the history of the state. Finally, there will be a team pub-style quiz, to test your knowledge of some of the terms that sound tricky but are actually not that hard to understand, with a prize for the winning team! Please bring $5-$10 to help cover costs - see you there

The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank.

The miserly Ebenezer Scrooge (Noah Mickens) is visited by three spirits (Eric Stern, Charity Marchandt, Scot Crandal) who give him a time-traveling crash course in the true meaning of Christmas. Also features Charlie Brown as Bob Cratchitt, Meg Russell as Tiny Tim, and swing royalty Russell Bruner and Pink Lady as the young Scrooge and Belle. It was Bela Balogh and Courney Von Drehle of 3LT who first proposed the idea of adapting the classic novelette A Christmas Carol with circus performances and guest vocalists from Wanderlust and their extended family of players. The historic Alberta Rose Theater was the ideal choice for this intimate family show, and an a-list cast is already forming just a week into pre-production. We all hope that our latest holiday offering will grow into an annual tradition, and bring laughter and inspiration to adults and children alike for years to come. for more information, check out: www.wanderlustcircus.com www.3legtorso.com www.albertarosetheater.com http://www.facebook.com/events/405325369625492/

We are building our communications and bridging our alliances to organize with the general public and increase awareness of After The Verdict activities.... Join Us Saturday! Tuesday, October 14th at 7pm in Moriarty Arts and Humanities Building Room 104 for the viewing of Let the Fire Burn, an 88 min. internationally acclaimed 2013 documentary film about the events leading up to and surrounding the May 13, 1985 stand-off between the social movement group MOVE and the City of Philadelphia. “Using only archival news coverage and interviews, first-time filmmaker Osder has brought to life one of the most tumultuous and largely forgotten clashes between government and citizens in modern American history.”—Zeitgeist Films A week later on Tuesday, October 21st 2014 at 5:45pm in Moriarty Arts and Humanities Building Room 104 I invite you all back to engage with a panel of speakers who will talk about the historical events in "Let the Fire Burn" and how these events relate to situations we are seeing still today in places like Ferguson, Portland and many other towns in our nation. The panel of three speakers on October 21st includes: Ms. Mimi German is a revolutionary from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She has first hand insight into the events depicted in "Let the Fire Burn". Ms. German has also lived in Massachusettes and Israel before moving to Portland, OR in 1996. Ms. German lives on a small farm with her animals. She is resolutely against nuclear power and procreation. She claims to be no “expert in anything other than one who has to date figured out how to still be standing here on Earth” and says she is simply a “Human Being and an Earth Activist. . . .a witness.” Ms. Teressa Raiford is a civil rights leader born in Oregon during the '70s as a 4th generation Black Portlander. Her family's history in civil rights is rooted in police harassment locally with the infamous possum toss by local police, the Mississippi NAACP during the Medgar Evers killing, human and labor rights Etc... Black America's struggle for civil rights is the movement she is pushing to empower. Ms. Raiford has lived and worked in Dallas TX and since coming back to Portland her focus is gang prevention. She has tun for political office, sits on several boards of social justice organizations and is currently the lead director and organizer of a movement in Portland called #DontShootPDX in solidarity with Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. She is working on various efforts for the betterment Portland. Mr. Wiley G. Barnett is a retired PCC employee who has long been involved with social justice activism. He continues to have serious interest in Black history and contemporary oppression. Because of the increasing damage to the very planet we live on and need, his attention and involvement has been increasingly on enviromental justice issues. I hope to see you there at either or both events! Film Reception "The doc's focus on period material confers an in-the-moment feel to the final product, bringing urgency to a story many in the audience will never have heard but which remains relevant after almost three decades." -John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter "Noteworthy for its “historical verite ” approach – no talking head interviews, no narration, no B-roll footage or reenactments – Let the Fire Burn brings the tragic events of May 13, 1985, back to life, forcing audiences to ask how police, fire department and city officials could stand by and watch as a helicopter dropped an incendiary device on the MOVE compound in West Philadelphia, and then let the subsequent fire rage into the night, ultimately leveling three city blocks and destroying 61 homes." -Steven Rea, Philly.com "Dispensing with the usual retrospective accounts and analytical chin-scratching, Osder creates both intensity and intimacy, inviting viewers simply to watch and listen as a tragedy — born of unchecked aggression, incoherent ideology and appallingly faulty logic — unfolds." -Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post "It’s remarkable, gripping storytelling, told in grainy footage that nonetheless crackles with life, and it leaves the viewer angry at the senseless loss of lives and property. A clergyman, on the hearings panel, quietly reminds us what’s at the heart of the entire, yearslong war between the police and MOVE: that it’s possible to forget, in the heat of anger and procedure, that the person on the other side of a conflict is a human being." -Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times Tara Foster Composition, Literature and Film PCC, Cascade Campus CFAF Coordinator Due to the weather we have relocated this Saturdays gathering to a local church located in the Dawson Park neighborhood. Bring food and beverages for potluck! We will be discussing the past two months and what our groups next steps will be to support the ongoing resistance to police violence against people in #Ferguson please reach out to as many individuals and organizations on the grounds as possible and let's use Saturday to connect with them directly as a group!!! PAST EVENTS LISTED BELOW and Just FYI ACLU training does not take 4 hours. All of our gatherings will continue to go on for 4 hrs in tribute to the time the St Louis Police let #MichaelBrown lie dead in the streets! Members of the #DontShootPDX group are ready to present "Know Your Rights" training to your group, students or organization. We believe that part of changing the brutal force culture in PPD is to arm citizens with information about their rights. Having some dialogue and sharing videos to help make us accountable for our safety. The ACLU of Oregon will hold a training this Saturday starting at 1 p.m. and continuing throughout the day till 4 p.m. ACLU organizers and Atty will train people on their basic rights when dealing with law enforcement. Are you confident in asserting your rights when dealing with police? Do you know when an officer has the right to search you? Many of us do not have the knowledge and confidence to stand up for our basic rights during an encounter with law enforcement. Knowing these rights and how to assert them should be a part of our basic education but, sadly, it is not. http://aclu-or.org/content/know-your-rights-your-rights-oregon In our community there are so many instances of hate crimes against blacks, women, our cities homeless, poor, disabled and our youth... we need to show consistent solidarity. People are afraid to be wrong, we are embarrassed by the way people view us and it keeps us from speaking out when its necessary. Tomorrow people in Ferguson will be marching. They aren't concerned about who is not standing with them because they are filled with pain. We need to follow our passion and make a stand with them. We will continue to update this event page and we ask that everyone come out to these gatherings so we can show the City of Portland, state of Oregon that violence against the people isn't acceptable. We need to start filing complaints regarding hate crimes against police officers and anyone else who discriminates and especially if it becomes physical. Join Us in Solidarity with the people of Ferguson, MO in honor of #MichaelBrown ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Groups on the ground in St. Louis are calling for nationwide solidarity actions in support of Justice for Mike Brown and the end of police and extrajudicial killings everywhere. On Saturday at 1pm -- every week after the murder of Mike Brown by a Ferguson police officer--in St. Louis they gathered at the location that Mike was shot in the Canfield Apartment buildings. We ask that you gather at the places in your community on Saturdays where police and extrajudicial killings have occurred to memorialize lives that have been lost and demand justice by ending systemic violence upon communities of color. We know that the murder of Mike Brown in St. Louis is just one of hundreds of murders per year by extrajudicial means throughout this country. There are too many names to list: Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Renisha McBride, Amadou Diallo and so many others. Just in the past weeks since Mike’s murder, the Los Angeles Police killed a 24 year-old man who was laying down when shot. Enough is enough--these killings must stop. We must end the systems of white supremacy, police brutality and inequality for communities of color that lead to these police killings. We hope that with renewed attention on this issue, we can widen the conversation to address both justice for Mike Brown and the underlying systems of oppression that play out against people of color on a day-to-day basis. Please join us this and every Saturday in calling for Justice for Mike Brown and the end of extrajudicial killings everywhere. We know that we will need powerful visuals and strategies to support our movement. In St. Louis, people have suggested using black caskets, photographs of those lost, and chalk outlines to send our message. Strategically, this nationwide event will be a tactic to help community members understand their personal rights and push for broad-based action on the issue of extrajudicial killings. Regardless of where you are, you can help move this fight forward by hosting an action in solidarity with St. Louisans demanding Justice for Mike Brown. Mike’s death was not an isolated incident, and we hope that groups around the country will use this moment to lift up and re-energize their own campaigns against systematic violence and the prison industrial complex. http://www.facebook.com/events/719132681455778/

Contact: Michele M. Larsen, The Joy Team 503.724.7442 | michele@thejoyteam.org thejoyteam.org What if you could change the world with one positive message? See the 100th positive message go up in Portland on 1/5/15 It’s commonly said that the way you change the world is one person at a time. Or, if you're a Portlander and local positive thought organization, The Joy Team, you do it one positive message at a time. The Joy Team launched an outdoor ad campaign for happiness in April 2010 and has been putting up inspiring and optimistic messages ever since. On January 5th at 9:00 AM, the 100th positive message goes up on a billboard in Portland, Oregon. These messages are making a difference. Portlander Jill Brown passes one that says "Anything is possible. Anything." as she drives her preschooler with special needs to intensive therapy a few times every week. She says, "It is at the best spot. A few blocks from an intensive pediatric therapy place that works with children with CP and Traumatic Brain Injury and other brain injuries. It always makes me smile every time and reminds me Anything is possible! Anything!" The 100th message: "Best. Day. Ever. And it's yours." is sponsored by Heather Strang. "As a Portland business owner I feel so proud to live in a city that honors each individual's ability to help shift a corner of their world through positive messaging," said Heather. "I believe each of us has the power to change the world with our positive focus. It doesn't have to take much. It can be a simple sticky note with "You're special, the world needs you" written on it and left in the ladies room. Or a billboard that is accessible to thousands of people through the incredible non-profit The Joy Team. Every person has the power to change the world with a positive message and it is my hope that what we are doing with The Joy Team will empower more people to put their focus on changing the world for the better. Join us!" "We're dedicated to uplifting lives by spreading joy, optimism and inspiration," affirms Michele McKeag Larsen, founder of The Joy Team. "And we want to do that in a substantial and continual way, so starting in October of 2013, we began maintaining a billboard a month to make the inspiration a constant force in the community." The public is invited to join The Joy Team and Heather Strang to celebrate the milestone of putting up 100 positive messages in our community. Come watch as Clear Channel Outdoor hangs the billboard at 9:00 AM on Monday, January 5th at the corner of NE Weidler Street and 1st Avenue in Portland. Why billboards? • An average poster billboard in the Portland area is seen 78, 960 times weekly. It reaches 30,949 unique viewers and each person, on average, sees it 2.5 times in a week. • Billboard advertising works. You can't turn it off, fast forward it or mute it. If you drive by it, you see it. Most people can't help reading something they see, it's automatic. Want to share a happy thought? A billboard is an excellent way to do it. Positive messages influence our thoughts. Our thoughts affect our beliefs, the words we speak and the actions we take; which shape the circumstances and events of our lives. Happier, more optimistic thoughts lead to happier, more optimistic people. Why does happiness matter? Not only does research show the health benefits are huge; but it also shows happiness leads to success in nearly every domain of our lives; including marriage, friendship, community involvement, creativity and, in particular, our jobs, careers and businesses. About The Joy Team Founded in February 2010, The Joy Team is a 501c3 corporation based in Vancouver, Washington, with the mission of building community by spreading joy, optimism and inspiration. Projects of the positive thought organization include putting up 100 positive messages (and counting), delivering over 2,000 Happy Packets to the staff of organizations serving the community through The Junior Joy Team, giving over 4,000 jars of joy-wrapped peanut butter to hungry kids through the PB & JOY Project and the annual Chalk the Walks event.

Portland Revels marks its 20th annual Christmas Revels with a new production set in 17th century London during the Caroline era. The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank. Beginning in the Tower of London in 2014, the Christmas Revels Keep Magic follows a young teen who, after being transported back in time, meets Henry Percy the Wizard Earl, and Morley, a resourceful prankster. Bruce Hostetler directs and Robert Lockwood is the musical director, with a cast featuring Tobias Andersen and Burl Ross. Christmas Revels is a popular form of seasonal production that features traditional dances, music and songs in celebration of the winter solstice. Familiar highlights of the Portland Revels’ annual event include mumming, the medieval Abbots Bromley Horn dance, and the central showpiece, the Lord of the Dance. Tickets $7.00-$39.00 Details and tickets at portlandrevels.org

India arguably has the largest deaf population in the world, but it is said that the number of certified interpreters are 250 for around 18 million deaf people! Sign language is still not an officially recognized language by the government. The country has no captions on television, no instructions for deaf people at public places, no TTY, no instruction through sign language in deaf schools and no deaf college or a university for deaf people. Beyond Silence is a documentary made with an intention of understanding these hidden voices in their own “words, language, and culture.” It is a humble attempt to acknowledge the existence of a living, competent, and thinking deaf community that has the ability to communicate “beyond silence.” The film is a celebration of deafness. It tries to explore and bring about a strong emotion of self-confidence and belief among deaf people. The film nowhere depicts the lives of deaf people as people with disabilities, on the contrary it questions and argues about concepts and ideas about 'being handicapped’.

Immediate Release Oct. 31, 2014 POSTAL PROTESTERS CHARGES DISMISSED More actions planned to stop the delay of mail The “postal defenders” won a reprieve today. County Judge Karin Immergut dismissed criminal charges in a civil disobedience protest case which was over two years old, saying the defendants’ constitutional right to a speedy trial had been violated. The protesters immediately turned from celebrating their victory to organizing for a Veteran’s Day, November 11th action, calling on the Postmaster General to halt the scheduled closure of half the nation’s remaining mail processing plants and to retain existing delivery standards, rather than delay America’s mail. The rally, which will also honor veterans’ involvement with the postal service, is slated for noon at Portland’s Waterfront Park. https://www.facebook.com/events/304852693054323/ Ten protestors – including Rev. John Schwiebert, Jamie Partridge, Jack Herbert, Trudy Cooper, Rev. Michael Colvin, Tim Flanagan, and Ann Huntwork -- were arrested on criminal trespass charges inside the now-closed University Station post office on May 24, 2012. While peacefully holding banners which called for “No Closures, No Cuts” and “Occupy the Post Office”, the ten – members of labor unions, faith groups, neighborhood organizations, small business owners, a disabled vet, retirees and the Occupy movement – refused to leave until postal management agreed to keep postal facilities open and full service. Over two years later, after a legal fight that went to the Oregon Supreme Court, the occupiers had hoped to get their day in court before a jury. The activists would have argued that they had tried every other means available – letter writing, phone calls, Congressional visits, rallies, marches, petitions, community hearings, City Council resolutions – but had been unable to stop the dismantling of the postal service by the Postmaster General (PMG). The protestors planned to argue that, in refusing to leave, they were attempting to stop the closure of one-half the nation’s mail processing plants, the gutting of service at half the country’s post offices and the delay of mail. The defendants will continue to argue that the real criminal is the PMG, who violates the Constitution (Article 1, sec. 8), Title 39 and Title 18, sec. 1701 & 1708 of the US Code by willfully obstructing & delaying the mail. http://www.facebook.com/events/434272496711167/

What messages do authors send to young people? Do the stories line up with our memories of being teenagers? We read contemporary work and also revisit classic authors like Judy Blume and SE Hinton.

Satori Men’s Chorus – “Men Singing Peace” – was founded in 1994 to offer men of all ages and musical backgrounds a community in which they could join their voices and grow as singers. Satori is directed by Susan Dorn. Mark Bosnian is an award-winning singer-songwriter, teacher, and performer who has appeared on stages around the world. He was inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame in 2001. He teaches vocal music to many Portland musicians, including members of Satori Men’s Chorus. He is joined tonight by Rebecca Cohen on bass. Artichoke Music is itself a musical community: a school of music, a venue for the performance of acoustic music, and a shop selling and repairing fine instruments. The program features four of its star performers: Anne Weiss, Paul Sanchez, and Steve Moss with Richard Colombo.

In Other Words' Adult Young Adult Book Club is a fun, casual discussion group for fans of YA literature. We meet at In Other Words on the third Thursday of each month to discuss young adult novels through a feminist/queer lens. How do our reactions to YA literature change as we age? What messages do authors send to young people? Do the stories line up with our memories of being teenagers? We read contemporary work and also revisit classic authors like Judy Blume and SE Hinton. Sound interesting? Join our Facebook group (www.facebook.com/groups/142378029143391/) to see what we've read so far, and to stay updated on what we're reading next!

The Portland Oregon Old-Time Music Gathering is a grassroots volunteer-run festival that aims to celebrate and enrich the community of traditional old-time Appalachian style stringband musicians.

The Ecopsychology program at Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling has expanded its scope to offer non-clinicians, specifically those working in sustainability or conservation work, graduate-level training that can help them be more effective in their efforts. Coursework in this certificate program will help participants understand individual motivations for change, especially behavior change, as well as how to communicate change effectively. The program will address the following questions: How do green spaces support the healthy development of our communities? How can psychological insights invigorate conservation efforts and support advocacy for social justice and community well-being? Starting January 17, we are offering Environmental Identity and the Ecological Self, the 1 credit prerequisite course that guides prospective certificate program applicants toward self‐reflection regarding identity and experience related to place, the natural world, and other species; and motivations for integrating ecological perspectives into academic, professional or advocacy work. Dates: Saturdays, January 17 and February 7, 2015 Time: 1-5 p.m. Additional study will be completed online. Online activities are scheduled between January 12 and February 9.

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

To RSVP for rides visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bus-rides-to-rally-on-capitol-steps-tickets-14945572610 if your city isn't on the list send us a message and let us know! The Fight for $15 is spreading across the country and Oregon is no exception. Employees at Home Forward (formerly The Portland Housing Authority), seasonal parks workers in Portland, and Multnomah County workers have all recently won $15 minimum wages, unions and community organizations around the state are endorsing a $15 minimum wage, and workers from Ashland to Portland to The Dalles are organizing to fight for $15 in Oregon! During the upcoming 2015 legislative session, Democrats will likely push to raise the state's minimum wage. They not only need to raise the minimum wage to a living wage of $15/hr, but they need to repeal the preemption law that prevents cities and counties in Oregon from raising the minimum wage locally. On behalf of 15 Now PDX and Portland Jobs with Justice, bills to repeal the intrusive and undemocratic preemption law and to raise the minimum wage to $15/hr in Oregon will be submitted for the 2015 legislative session. We can win, but we need the working class of Oregon to stand up with us and demand $15 Now! We call all on Oregon's working class to rally on the steps of the capitol building in Salem on January 24, 2015 from noon - 1pm in order to get out in front of this eventual legislative discussion and ensure that our state legislators know that Oregon's working class demands a real living wage of $15/hr! Rally at the capitol building at noon. Then head to the Ike Box at 1pm for the gathering where you can get plugged in with other minimum wage activists and 15 Now chapters from around the state. Join us and Fight for $15 for the whole State of Oregon! This rally is sponsored by 15 Now Oregon, 15 Now PDX, 15 Now Salem Oregon, Jobs with Justice, PCUN, SEIU Local 49, AFSCME Local 328, CWA Local 7901 http://www.facebook.com/events/1498828657062887/

On Sunday, January 25, 2015, join over 2,000 Portlanders for a New Year celebration of Japanese American traditions! Mochitsuki is, in its strictest sense, the pounding of rice into tasty, sticky rice cakes, or mochi, that symbolizes starting the New Year with a full belly in hopes of abundance in the year ahead. The 19th annual edition of Mochitsuki is a family-friendly festival offering a feast for the senses, with food, art, performances, and many exceptional hands-on cultural experiences for all ages. Over the years this celebration has grown in popularity, and this year Mochitsuki will move and now take place at Portland State University’s Smith Memorial Student Union.

We tend to have specific ways we define “good” communication and conflict resolution (e.g., “I feel” statements, direct processing, assertive communication). However, if we do not incorporate intercultural communication (IC) concepts, unintentional misunderstandings may occur with the people we work with and in our relationships. We cannot always assume our standards are universal or right. Increasing our ability to navigate our differences allows us to truly connect with others. These types of skills are critical for real cultural competency and effectiveness in our work. This workshop will review key intercultural communication theories and concepts, and how to apply them in communication between adults. The concepts presented still apply in communication with children, however specific applications with children will not be discussed in the workshop. The importance of integrating intercultural communication work with social justice perspectives will also be emphasized. Who should attend? This workshop is designed for those working in “helping professions”, such as counselors, therapists, and educators, as well as for staff and leadership in schools, clinics, nonprofits and other organizational settings, and for community members seeking to improve their communication, work more effectively, and build better relationships with diverse populations. Date: Saturday, January 31, 2015 Time: 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Instructor: Cheryl Forster, Psy.D. Cost: $125 by 1/16, $150 after, includes 7 CEUs or PDUs, $50 students.

Join the Art of Hosting for an Art of Participatory Leadership Intensive. The Art of Hosting practice was born out of the field of large group facilitation, where self-organization and “a leader in every seat” are prime organizing principles. We marry the new leadership paradigms of complexity science and living systems theory with accessible design tools and frameworks. Many practitioners and leaders are seeking processes, tools and engagement strategies that bring out the best in our communities and foster deeper collaboration. That’s what the Art of Participatory Leadership is all about. Why Attend?  • Broaden the skill set within your group; work more effectively and enjoyably together; engage teams, organizations and community stakeholders in meaningful conversations that promote resilience, belonging and innovation. • Enhance your skills and abilities to see and address difficult questions; transform conflict into creative cooperation; develop confidence; use wise process planning architectures for small and large scale initiatives; and host strategic conversations. • Connect with other leaders addressing crucially needed changes and explore how you can work more powerfully together. Dates: Wednesday-Friday, February 11-13, 2015 Times: Wednesday: 12:30-8:30 p.m.; Thursday: 9 a.m.–5 p.m.; Friday: 9 a.m.–5 p.m. NOTE: Check in opens at 11:30 on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will begin at 8 a.m. with beverages and a light continental breakfast.  Location: Lewis & Clark College, Portland, OR Facilitators: Kevin Hiebert, Teresa Posakony, Jenna Ringelheim, Aimee Samara, Heather Tischbein, Tenneson Woolf Costs: Individuals, nonprofit or government leaders: $550 by 12/31, $600 after. For profit or business leaders: $700 by 12/31, $750 after. $50 discount for 3 or more registrants from the same organization. 20 CEUs, offered by Lewis & Clark are available for an additional $20.

Portland Revels marks its 20th annual Christmas Revels with a new production set in 17th century London during the Caroline era. The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank. Beginning in the Tower of London in 2014, the Christmas Revels Keep Magic follows a young teen who, after being transported back in time, meets Henry Percy the Wizard Earl, and Morley, a resourceful prankster. Bruce Hostetler directs and Robert Lockwood is the musical director, with a cast featuring Tobias Andersen and Burl Ross. Christmas Revels is a popular form of seasonal production that features traditional dances, music and songs in celebration of the winter solstice.

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

Tommy has been renting a room in his uncle’s house for a few years, doing odd-jobs and trying get-rich-quick schemes with his buddy, Doc. Not a fan of the past, Tommy barely keeps his ex-wife and kids at arms length.

Portland Revels marks its 20th annual Christmas Revels with a new production set in 17th century London during the Caroline era. The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank. Beginning in the Tower of London in 2014, the Christmas Revels Keep Magic follows a young teen who, after being transported back in time, meets Henry Percy the Wizard Earl, and Morley, a resourceful prankster. Bruce Hostetler directs and Robert Lockwood is the musical director, with a cast featuring Tobias Andersen and Burl Ross. Christmas Revels is a popular form of seasonal production that features traditional dances, music and songs in celebration of the winter solstice. Familiar highlights of the Portland Revels’ annual event include mumming, the medieval Abbots Bromley Horn dance, and the central showpiece, the Lord of the Dance. Tickets $7.00-$39.00 Details and tickets at portlandrevels.org
